Description

    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims the benefits of the Taiwan Patent Application Serial Number 103128085, filed on Aug. 15, 2014, the subject matter of which is incorporated herein by reference.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The disclosure relates to a touch display device, and especially to a touch display device capable of reducing the visibility of electrode patterns.
  • 2. Description of Related Art
  • In recent years, with the development trend of user-friendly operation and simplification, touch display devices are more and more widely used in life. Since users can input signal to the touch panel by a hand directly or other objects, users' dependence on other input devices (such as a keyboard, a mouse, and a remote control, etc.) is reduced or even eliminated, and users' convenience is increased dramatically.
  • A typical touch panel unit includes a sensing electrode array having a plurality of sensing electrodes arranged in series along the vertical and horizontal directions, metal bridges for electrically connecting the sensing electrodes, and an insulating layer disposed therebetween. A cover glass is necessary to be disposed on the touch panel for protection, and an adhesive can be used to replace the traditional border sticker for a phone screen to achieve full lamination of the cover glass and the touch panel. The use of adhesive can avoid the air gap caused by the border sticker, and effectively improve the display quality of the touch panel. Nowadays, common adhesives are, for example, an optical clear adhesive (OCA), an optical clear resin (OCR) and the like.
  • Although the adhesive can improve the display quality of the touch panel, it, however, makes the electrode array pattern of the touch panel more observable by the human eye, causing the visibility problem. Therefore, what is needed in the art is to develop a touch display device, which can alleviate the visibility problem of the electrode pattern to enhance user's visual quality.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The disclosure is to provide a touch display device capable of effectively solving the visibility problem of the electrode pattern.
  • To achieve the above object, the disclosure provides a touch display device, comprising: a display; a touch panel disposed on the display; and a protective layer disposed on the touch panel; wherein at least one of the high refractive layer is disposed between the protective layer and the touch panel, and the high refractive layer has a refractive index greater than 1.5 and less than 2.0.
  • Accordingly, in the touch display device of the disclosure, the high refractive layer is disposed between the protective layer and the touch panel to reduce the difference between the refractive indexes of the touch panel and the high refractive layer and substantially reduce the refraction and reflection phenomenon while light penetrates the panel, thereby effectively alleviating the visibility problem of the electrode pattern.
